End the Selling and Slaughtering of Dolphins!

This petition had 545 supporters

Bottle-nose Dolphins are exquisite mammals of the ocean. But these exquisite mammals are being sold and slaughtered by Taiji, Japan. Bottle-nose dolphins are being sold to entertainment companies such as Sea World. But those who are not sold for entertainment, are sold for their meat. 

Many people don't know but these dolphins contain high amounts of mercury toxins. Fishermen put Japan's residents in danger of poisoning since they are providing them with contaminated dolphin meat. Please help stop this senseless selling and slaughtering of dolphins in Japan! Because believe it or not, it is still occurring every year in September. Let's speak for these defenseless beautiful sea creatures.
